Legal Question in Immigration Law in Massachusetts

Am i allowed to volunteer at my husbands company. We got married a couple of weeks ago and all my immigration paperwork has been submitted (including employment authorization). He is opening a new retail shop and we want to know if i could in the meantime volunteer in the shop. I wouldn't be getting a salary but he will be making money and since we are married...indirectly so would i.
